DLA to PIP Amazing Success! was created by 59phil
Hi,
I would just like to send many, many thanks to this Forum / Website, as we have just received the infamous 'Brown Envelope'. We have been awarded ENHANCED for both Daily Care and Mobility!

My partner had been on an indefinite award of DLA, and was then invited to apply for PIP.

We used all the resources available on this site, in particular the guides from the members area, which we know for sure was a huge part of our successful application.

By following your advice and recommendations to the letter, and carefully going through the 'How Your Disability Affects You' Form, (for 6 hours, believe it or not!), it certainly made things easier.

We knew what we had to write, and more importantly, how to word it, and compared it at the same time to what the assessor would be looking for too.

Also, I rang up and got the face-to-face assessment changed to a Home Visit, and would recommend anyone else do the same.

Without the resources here, we firmly believe that we would not have been successful, so thanks for all that you do and provide.

Thanks and Regards,

Phil and Angie.
